Call Me By Your Name (2017) has been on my to-see-list ever since I failed to go and see it in the cinema when it was released.

But the trailer looked interesting, I’d been assured by several people that the film was worth watching, and with nothing better to do I decided to give it a go.

I loved Once Upon a Time in Hollywood… until it seemed to turn into a Saw movie.
Going to a cinema to see a documentary about psychiatry does not sound like a recipe for a great night out, let alone a recommendable tourist activity, but hear me out…
Is Oscar-contender Green Book a classic feelgood film or a problematic representation of real life events? The truth may lie somewhere in the middle.
